USC Utah : Throwdown Friday Free Pick 9/23

Updated: September 22, 2016

USC Utah

Trojans have a tough task in the USC Utah game this Friday at 9PM.  USC (1-2) is in their usual amount of inner turmoil.  Got blown out by Bama and now are taking swings at each other in practice.  No such thing for a stable Utes (3-0) squad.  Good to see one and all back here at The Gambling Forum.  For all the dissension, Utah has only moved from a -2 to a three point home favorite.  Rice-Eccles is supposed to be a formidable venue to play at so will this factor into our Throwdown Friday Free Pick?

USC Utah : Trojans Have to Utilize Him

Practical effect of the defector Stevie Tu’ikolovatu coming back home to play against Utah instead of for them makes for good media but not a lot of effect on the field.  Instead, everyone should be focusing on what Adoree Jackson will bring for the Trojans.  This tad under six foot cornerback has grand possibilities as both a wide receiver and decoy on offense.  He makes plays and is labeled as their spark plug.  This might be the only point of concern that a solid Utes defense might have with USC.  Stale offense could come to life under the lights of the Utah night if they decide to use him.

Utes Travis Wilson

Been around the block has Travis Wilson.  Puttered around all levels of football.  Was up in Washington when Sarkisian left.  Now he is with the Utes and he gives them a balanced dynamic.  Can throw well and can scamper with the upper tier of mobile quarterbacks.  USC was vulnerable to the talents of Bama QB Jalen Hurts who got them for two touchdowns on the ground.  Here is another quarterback in that mold but is much more advanced.  Points and sustained drives should not be a problem with the Utes this time around.

Odd line as the public has not embraced the potential of the Utes on Friday.  -2 is stuck on that field goal spot right now.  Once it lifts from there to -3 1/2, a rapid descent to minus five is possible.  Get this price before the freefall begins.  Load up on BetOnline or HRWager right now on the Utes -3 as the TGF Throwdown Friday Free Pick.  Good fortune and we will see you tomorrow here at The Gambling Forum.
